Showing Appreciation for Educators - Teacher Bracelets, Lanyards & More
When you might first think about the success of a sports team or other extracurricular activity when you hear the words school spirit. It’s true that student success is certainly a huge component. But what about your staff? Teachers have a very important job: setting up their students for success. This obviously goes beyond just the classroom. Teachers often also act as mentors, coaches, and confidantes. Unfortunately, the contributions teachers make are often overlooked, and they don’t get the credit and recognition they deserve. One simple and inexpensive way you can show the teachers in your life that you appreciate them is through teacher bracelets and lanyards from Wristband Resources™.
Why are teachers so important?
Source of Knowledge and Inspiration
Teachers do more than lecture and assign homework. They act as a source of knowledge on a variety of subjects. They share knowledge beyond what is in the textbook. They answer their students’ in-depth questions and inspire further curiosity. This curiosity influences further studies and extracurricular activities. In fact, this curiosity can even influence careers once the students graduate.
Mentorship and Coaching
Oftentimes, teachers are leaders both in the classroom and out. So many coaches, directors, and club leaders are teachers. For this reason, teachers have a big influence on the success and development of their students. When they aren’t passing wisdom to students in a classroom, they are often helping them continue to grow as they pursue activities that interest them outside the traditional classroom.
Teachers take an interest in the lives of their students. For that reason, students often confide in their teachers when there is a problem. Whether there is a problem at school or at home, or they just need some advice, teachers create a positive and welcoming environment where these conversations can take place. Students benefit from a role model who listens and provides unbiased advice.
How to Show Teachers You Appreciate Them
Teachers have a lot on their plates. As a parent of a student, you can support your son or daughter’s teacher by volunteering. Events like fundraisers and field trips require extra support. Whether you are making cookies for a bake sale or accompanying a class on a field trip, volunteering lessens the workload for your teacher.
A few kind words go a long way. Teachers have stressful, yet, fulfilling jobs. Sometimes all it takes is a few kind words to make a teacher’s day. A kind thank-you note really goes a long way. It may seem like a small gesture, but some positive words really do mean a lot in this profession. Next time your child shows improvement in a difficult subject or has a great semester, be sure to write a thank-you note.
Throughout the year, there may be times when classroom supplies run a bit low. Too often, teachers must reach into their own wallets to resupply their classrooms. This isn’t fair, especially considering that teachers are often not fairly compensated. If you are able, you can support your student, their classmates, and their teacher by donating items like writing utensils, paper, and notebooks. Everyone in the classroom will appreciate it.
Gift Ideas for Teachers
Everybody likes to feel appreciated. Unfortunately, teachers are some of the more underappreciated workers. You can show your support for teachers using the following gifts.
Everyone enjoys a treat once in a while. The next time you want to show a teacher you appreciate them, gift them a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant.
Teachers are proud of the schools they work for. For that reason, a custom lanyard is a great gift for the teachers at your school. They can be personalized with a supportive message, custom graphics, and your school’s colors.
Another great gift you can give all the teachers in your life is teacher bracelets. Our silicone bracelets are completely customizable as well. You can add custom text, your school’s logo, and more to show you an appreciation for your teachers.
Types of Teacher Bracelets
Debossed silicone wristbands are made with a laser engraver or mold. Your design is sunken into the surface of the silicone band and can be felt. On the other hand, embossed bracelets have the design raised from the surface of the band. Wristband Resources™ allows you to personalize your bands by choosing your font, text size, and up to four graphics.
Our printed silicone wristbands are made using silk-screen technology. The way it works is simple. You customize the bracelet to your liking and we print it over the top layer of the band, leaving a smooth, sleek texture.
Ink-injected wristbands combine debossing and printing to create a great bracelet. First, we engrave your custom design into the bracelet before it gets injected with long-lasting ink. This guarantees that your design will be protected from wearing over time.
Color-coated wristbands are two-toned and fully customizable. The customization gets etched into the exterior layer of the band before being filled with ink matching the interior color of the band. This design displays the text more vividly and adds an artistic touch.
